The project coordinates a few summer coding programs in which student developers are paired with mentors to produce code over the summer.
European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) 2016
ns-3 plans to apply to SOCIS 2016, which provides funding similar to Google Summer of Code, with some restrictions on student eligibility and on project scope (must be related to space in some way). See the SOCIS 2015 page for more information.
Google Summer of Code 2016
ns-3 was not selected for the 2016 Google Summer of Code. Despite this, we plan to apply again for the ESA Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) and we also plan to mentor summer projects outside of GSoC. Please check back for more details, or contact mentors listed on the project ideas page if you may be interested in continuing to pursue a summer coding project with ns-3.
Google Summer of Code 2015
ns-3 was selected to participate in the 2015 Google Summer of Code. More information can be found on our Project Ideas page and our Student Guide.
This year's students were announced on April 27, and all four successfully completed the program:
- Melchiorre Danilo Abrignani, Carrier Aggregation support for the LTE module
- Matthieu Coudron, Implementing multipath TCP (MPTCP) in ns3
- Natale Patriciello, TCP layer refactoring with automated test on RFC compliance and validation
- Vishwesh Rege, 802.15.4 realistic MAC and Energy Model
European Space Agency Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) 2015
ns-3 has been accepted to the 2015 ESA Summer of Code in Space. The ns-3 project had one student in SOCIS in each of 2013, 2014 and 2015. However, the satellite channel models project for 2015 Satellite channel models did not successfully complete.

Mentored summer projects
ns-3 maintainers will mentor additional summer projects (that students will work on using their own sources of funding) on a best-effort basis. Students interested in this option should review the GSoC or SOCIS ideas page, or propose their own.
We have one such mentored project in 2015:
- Saswat Mishra, Neighbor Discovery enhancements
